The Battle for Hoth

After the Clone Wars most of the battles I fought in did not seem much of a challenge. In the late Empire period the most memorable battle I fought was the Battle for Hoth.

My unit was sent to the far side of Echo base in order to attack from the eastern flank.
We were on foot to avoid detection and came a large frozen lake.

As we crossed the lake, we spotted a squad of rebels.

They charged at us with their Small Team Ice Cannons (S.T.I.Cs) raised high. We dropped several Projected Utility Cells (P.U.Cs) into attack mode and use our own S.T.I.Cs to shoot them at the rebels. After several minutes of fast and furious scrimmaging, my unit had fully checked the main body of rebel advancement. The rebel line broke and they ran for the eastern entrance of Echo base.

We managed to fire three P.U.Cs into the opening, which destroyed it. To this day blowing up an base entrance with three shots is still called ‘A Hoth Trick’.

Even though some of the rebels managed to escape, the eastern exit was block preventing many more rebels from getting away. Lord Vader gave our unit a special award.

Nice isn’t it.

A Hoth trick? You call bringing down a pile of snow with three shots impressive? Man you boys need to get out more.

And you still owe me 27 credits for buring my new boots in an ice cave! You know that I had to run to my craft in my stocking feet, you inconsiderate, Emperian lackey?!

Nice trophy, by the way.
